Christmas at Notre Dame: The Notre Dame Glee Club and Symphony Orchestra

Happy Holidays from Notre Dame! We present the Glee Club and Symphony Orchestra’s annual performance “Christmas at Notre Dame” from the Leighton Concert Hall on campus. Recognized as one of the finest all-male collegiate choral groups in the country, more than 2,000 young men have sung with the University of Notre Dame Glee Club, currently under the direction of Daniel Stowe, combining the rich traditions of Notre Dame with the highest standards of artistic excellence. The Notre Dame Symphony Orchestra (NDSO), also directed by Stowe, is an ensemble of 80-90 musicians devoted to performing the orchestral music of the 18th-21st centuries. Recorded live on December 4, 2021.
